The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains heading to Dortmund, Germany Print E-mail

The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains - Dortmund, GermanyWell, the wait is over - the next location for The Pink Floyd Exhibition: Their Mortal Remains is a city that the Floyd played in a number of times, from the 1977 In The Flesh tour onwards. Dortmund is the city, and the Dortmunder U is the location.

The venue is a former brewery building, which for the last eight years has been a centre for the arts and creativity. Situated close to the city's centrally located railway station, it's in an ideal position. You can find out more about the museum, and the exhibition, via

With the Rome, Italy, staging of the exhibition, there were some adjustments to the items displayed, not least an inclusion of items specific to that country. We suspect the same changes will be made for Dortmund, with materials relating to German shows being included amongst the exhibits.

Whilst an official announcement is yet to be made, tickets have now gone on sale, and the venue website also has a section on the exhibition.

This latest staging of the exhibition opens on September 15th, and runs until February 10th 2019. Tickets are now available as a special presale through Eventim; you can buy them through this direct link.

Nick Mason's 'Unattended Luggage' 3CD/3LP box sets Print E-mail

Nick Mason - Unattended Luggage 3LP box setReleased on August 31st, 2018 through Warner Music is Nick Mason's 'Unattended Luggage', a three album CD or vinyl box set of his albums 'Nick Mason's Fictitious Sports', 'Profiles' and 'White of the Eye'. These limited edition box sets will be available shortly before his acclaimed new band Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets begin their European tour at Cirkus in Stockholm on September 2nd.

For those who need reminding, 'Fictitious Sports' was Nick's debut solo album from 1981, which included collaborations with a variety of different musicians including Robert Wyatt and Carla Bley. 1985's 'Profiles' saw him hook up with 10cc guitarist Rick Fenn, and is a mainly instrumental album except for tracks Lie for a Lie which features vocals from Maggie Reilly and Floyd bandmate David Gilmour and Israel, sung by UFO keyboardist Danny Peyronel.

Finally, there's 'White of the Eye', another collaboration with Rick Fenn, a soundtrack for the British thriller movie of the same name. Originally released on January 1st 1987 on Harvest in the UK, and Columbia in the US, to coincide with the film's release, this is the first time the record has been made available for over 20 years, and the first time it will appear on CD.

Nick Mason said: "These recordings hold a very special place for me in my musical life. 'Fictitious Sports' developed initially from working with Mike Mantler, Carla Bley and Robert Wyatt on a couple of their projects, and benefited enormously from a whole crew of great musicians that I was introduced to by them at Grog Kill Studios in Woodstock.

"'Profiles' and 'White of the Eye' were an extension of working with Rick Fenn on some advertising and short documentary film soundtracks, which then developed into something more.

"Listening back after 30 odd years, I'm delighted they are getting the reissue treatment. I'm rather hoping that sales will be sufficient to damage the market in the original rare vinyl versions!"

For those not after the physical, 3CD or 3LP box sets of 'Unattended Luggage', the albums will all be available to download and through streaming platforms.

Below we list dedicated ordering links for both box sets - CD and vinyl - using these links will give a small but vital contribution to the running costs of Brain Damage, without costing you a penny/cent extra, and we really appreciate it!

Prog Magazine makes The Final Cut Print E-mail

Tuesday, 12 June 2018

Prog issue 88The new issue of the UK's Prog Magazine (issue 88) appears in stores across the country on Thursday, and as you'll notice from the striking cover, has a focus on Pink Floyd's 1983 album, the final one to include Roger Waters.

The cover story is all about the making of The Final Cut and how the album shaped the future for both Floyd and Roger Waters ever since. The ten-page feature is a detailed and fascinating look at the project, and includes historical interview material with Roger, David Gilmour, keyboard player Andy Bown, engineer Andy Jackson, and photographer Willie Christie, who explains how the "video EP" came about for The Final Cut.

There's also a two-page chat with Roger about his current run of live dates in Europe, plans for filming the shows, and other things he is working on (this piece is adapted from a longer interview with Dutch radio station NPO Radio 2, which we mentioned back in April).

Elsewhere in the magazine, there's a page and a half looking at Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets, including a great, full page review of the recent Dingwalls concert, the band's first ever public appearance.

The issue comes in a bag with a ten track CD, two free early Marillion posters and a copy of the Be Prog! My Friend festival programme. The magazine also includes interviews with Klaus Schulze, David Cross & David Jackson, Traffic, Spock's Beard, The Sea Within, Arena, Temples On Mars, Arjen Lucassen, The Decemberists, Lunatic Soul and more...

You can purchase Prog Magazine, either as single issues or as a subscription, in the UK and also internationally through this direct link. Prog is also available on iPad, Google Play, Kindle and Nook.
